Thursday ramblings and other insignificant thoughts
Happy Thursday everybody! :)
Things are going well... today was parent-conferences. Ugh. I hate them. And really, half my kids don't need them. And the ones that do... well, their parents don't read the notes and I can't get in contact with them. But I guess that's how it is in all schools.
There's all sorts of drama going on at school right now. Our school is tiny and there are 2 K's, 2 1sts, 1 2nd, 1 3rd, 2 4ths, and 1 5th. The K's are tiny and the 1st is tiny so next year there will only be 1 1st, 1 2nd... and 1 4th and then 2 5ths. What all this means is that teachers are going to be involuntarily bumped.. and all is based on seniority. I'm low- very low- on the totem poll, so I should technically be bumped. However, I'm the only one (besides my K teaching partner) with K credentials (ECE degree versus elementary degree). What this means is that someone with more seniority will be bumped before me... and they're none too happy about it.
On a positive note, however, it looks like our numbers for K next year will be pretty substantial. So, it looks like there will be 2 K's (at least as of now), so it looks like I WILL have a job at my school in my grade. :)
This weekend we're celebrating my dad's birthday Saturday and Sunday we're having dinner or lunch or some sort of food-related meal with Johnny's family. A really really late Christmas. :)
I got my first paper back for my class! A 5/5. I'm very excited. It's nice to be back in the swing of things and it's nice to know that I can still write!
